Note: Please do not add that "The Sony Hack was going on" as a reason here, because this was before the Hack occurred.
The Smurfs 3 is a proposed third installment in the live-action Smurfs franchise. The announcement was made about two weeks after The Smurfs 2 was released in theaters. It was originally set for a release in 2015, but was cancelled.
The film was possibly going to have the Smurfs be in a different time period.

- Jonathan Winters, the voice actor of Papa Smurf died of natural causes on April 11, 2013 before the film was made.
- The Smurfs 3 was permanently cancelled.
- The Smurfs series was rebooted in 2017 with a CGI film titled Smurfs: The Lost Village.
- It was going to be about time travelling back to possibly 1878.
